Love The Hair You Were Born With

Jan 16, 2008
It's human nature to want what we don't have. The results of not getting what we want from our hair sometimes results in a blow to our self esteem.

It certainly doesn't help that most celebrities seem to always look like they're having a great hair day. Never mind that they probably just spent hours being brushed, combed, sprayed, twisted and fussed over by an army of colorists, stylists and other beauty professionals.

If you ever wondered how to escape the agonies of bad hair days followed by endless self flogging over unmanageable locks you are in luck. Adopt the following simple strategies and you will find instant relief for your hair woes.

Begin The Positive Start your new hair love program by first taking a long look at yourself in the mirror. There are lots of things about your hair that you like when you stop to look at it. Concentrate on the hair parts that you enjoy: great color that brings out your eyes and skin, fabulous length, bangs that are perfectly layered.

Focus on all the great parts of your hair and don't get caught up in the attributes that you don't like. Make a list and tape it somewhere close to your daily hair care station. Whenever you get discouraged or start beating up your hair stop and read your list to reinforce your awareness of the great hair parts that you truly possess.

You and only you are required to wear your hair for your life events. Well meaning spouses, family, friends and acquaintances will normally provide their opinions about your hair.

When external critics volunteer their unsolicited opinions keep in mind that they don't own your hair. You do. Unless someone tells you that your hair is on fire, smile politely at their comments and then ignore them. These people like to give their opinions because they actually have their own problems.

It is helpful to remember that when you are true to your own likes and needs you are truly expressing who you are to the world. This is true of the way you choose to wear your hair, the shoes you select or the car that you drive. Unfortunately, the material things are what make you in the world today.

Find A Realistic Role Model Whether you have super straight hair, masses of curls or tons of waves, find a role model that has the same type of hair you do. It is folly to try and have curls like Debra Messing when your hair is fine, thin or straight as a board. Instead, focus on people with hair like yours to model.

Be realistic about the possibilities for your own hair. Jennifer Aniston has naturally wavy hair that has been morphed into a range of sleek, straight, shiny styles. Not only does she endure hours of styling tortures, her hair requires mountains of hair care products to maintain.

Unless you plan on hiring your own army of hair and makeup people be prepared to look fabulous in your own hair, not Jennifer's or Debra's or anyone else.
